  2.   What Animal Am I?
...Animal Riddles 1. What animals do you need to make a square? 2. What can you do if you are surrounded by lions, tigers, leopards, and bears? (To find the answers continue reading) Introduction In the previous unit, we have been studying different phylum such as mollusk, arthropods, segmented worms, echinoderms, flat worms, sponges, cnidarians, and round worms. Discuss with the person sitting to your left a characteristic of each and an example that would fit into that phyla. I will do the first one for you: mollusk - soft-bodied animal - squid. Today we are going to experience a learning adventure that will introduc...

...feeding strategies, which may at least partially account for their abundance in the samples. Bivalves are typically cavity dwellers, and were commonly found in the calices (skeleton cups) of dead corals. The obvious abundance of this habitat may account for the abundance of bivalves in the samples. Echinoderms (brittle stars) were also found in large numbers in the calices of dead coral. Students should also realize that the primary source of food for benthic organisms is primary production that occurs in shallower waters, and that organic material and nutrients are transported out of these environments when organi...

...to a crevice in the reef and erects the dorsal spine and the pelvis, helping to wedge itself into shelter. They are gentle swimmers, but can swim fast if threatened using their tail. They posses a relatively small mouth with powerful jaws and strong incisor-like teeth. They feed mainly on mollusks, echinoderms, and crustaceans. Beaked Leatherjacket: Family: Monacanthidae The beaked leatherjacket is found in the Great Barrier Reef and throughout S.E. Asia and Indo-W. Pacific. They inhabit coral reefs, and are closely related to triggerfishes but are laterally more compressed. They are slow swimmers, using their dorsa...

  7.   Where Do I Belong?
...ll. In a squid, the mantle secretes a pen that is found within the squid. They also have a muscular foot to help with movement. In the cephalopods (octopus and squid), the foot has been modified into arms and tentacles. They also have a radula which is a feeding structure, much like a rough tongue. Echinodermata Echinoderms, which means spiny skin, have a calcarious exoskeleton with a water vascular system. A water vascular system is a network of water-filled canals that are used in locomotion and food-gathering. They have pentaradial symmetry. They move by their tube feet. They have capabilities of regeneration. Ex...
